Hang in there my friend; email if you like.

It is never easy, and NO one I know made it in one simple step.

Always a few forward, and one backward, and then...

You can do it.

you know you can call me if there is anything you need to talk about or just work thru. please understand that most people that have experienced it know the hardships, so we have your back.

not sure who said it but, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

my thoughts and prayers are with you my friend.

Hey old wolf, if you need me you know I'm here. Everybody takes a stumble now and then - it's really up to you whether you sit by the roadside crying or get up and walk on.

Ooh baby,
that's hard to change
I can't tell them
how to feel.
Some get stoned,
some get strange,
But sooner or later
it all gets real.

Walk on, walk on,
Walk on, walk on.

It took 5 or 6 shots for me before I stopped trying to "get" sobriety and just let it "get" me. Sobriety happens, it's just harder when we try to force it rather than just letting it be what it is... a one day at a time journey in this life's escapade.

Be well and do the best you can to NOT beat yourself up over it. Alcoholics drink. Addicts use. That's what we're supposed to do. That is, until, the weight of our disease truly becomes too much to bear.

Thoughts and prayers....

Only users lose drugs...rehab is for quitters.

I've been to a few NA meetings & I've always wondered why so many bother to seperate alcohol & illegal drugs & say they're "cross-addicted". A drug is a drug as far as I'm concerned, so all you tobacco smokers are drug addicts---don't kid yourselves you junkies!

Anyway, I hope I'm not too late to wish you luck DW. Don't beat yourself up because it takes most addicts several tries @ rehab to "get sober"---are we REALLY "sober" just because we haven't imbibed recently? Love & vibes man, love & vibes...

Are we really sober? Good one, I've often thought it but never put it into words.

My pal asked me why I stopped drinking, I told him I didn't need to drink to act like an idiot. He got a big kick out of that.

First the Detox, then the real work starts. I know that you've struggled, and want you to know that this is absolutely normal. All addicts struggle. It's not as simple as making a decision. Every day you'll need to make the decision. Sometimes multiple times a day.

You have a vast support system among list members, and I for one would like you to know that when you need it, all you need to do is ask.

Addiction has touched my life in a significant way, not my own, but that of my previous wife.

Be aware that you are stronger than the abused substance. You need to control it, not allow it to control you.

My hopes and prayers are with you, Dire.

thank you everyone - i really appreciate your words, prayers, thoughts, and support.

i made an attempt at being a social drinker. well.... that didnt work out so well. my daughters had to call their mother to come get them.... and we were having such a good day too. just the bottle kept calling me. i am in no means abusive to them - they just know.

and for all of tito's abusive comments - he is right. i do need tough love now. everyone around me knows this. i''m waiting for the call back from the detox center (i think i should have told them i have a knife a getting ready to use it - lol)

thanks again friends - i WILL beat this

Don let me first state that ALCOHOL SUCKS, it is a garbage drug it doesn't really make you feel all that good, then you really feel BAD the next day......and then people tell you what an idiot you were, then you feel shitty so you have a drink....then ten years have passed and your kids are grown and you realize "damn I'm x age and I don't remember the last x years, this is the point in your life where you can either continue being a sucker or use your brain and make a conscious decision to stop letting a GARBAGE drug RUIN your life. You are obviously an intelligent person,do you wish to continue feeling like a fool, continue getting fooled into thinking that you can just have "A" drink, if you haven't figured it out yet let me go on and lay it on you.....ALCOHOLICS CANT HAVE "A" DRINK....I went through all the bullshit about telling myself all the lies..."just a little taste, I've been doin so good a taste won't hurt" BULLSHIT, if you want to continue destroying your family(which is what your doing) why don't you be honest and just say to them "hey,fuck you all, I want to continue drinking and acting like an idiot" the only reason I say that is because I know that is not what you want.My first trip to rehab was a joke, the only reason I went was so I could say I was trying to quit and maybe I could just get high in peace if I acted like I wanted to quit. Which I am sure was what was going thru your mind the first trip, I hope that this time you are going cause you truly want to quit and if you truly want to quit stop lying to yourself and realize that no matter how you justify it if you drink AT ALL you are making a decision to trade your family for ONE drink cause the first one is all that matters. I promise you one thing, if you don't have that first drink, you'll never be a drunken idiot again. I sincerely wish you the best and you know where I'm at if you need me to tell you to quit being an idiot.

thanks pat - i was kinda laughing at some of what you wrote, but that is only because you are spot on!! like you, i thought i could get by the first time, have a drink or two and everything would be fine. then it recently became 10 or 12 again - or more.

thank you for your honesty and your true words of wisdom. i know this HAS to be the last time for me.

i am grateful for people like you who can honestly tell me "what it is." you call me a fool and that is exactly what i have been. i do appreciate that. trading my beautiful girls for a drink just isnt worth it. they deserve more from my life and so do i.

thanks friend

You can do this- you may remember I am a recovering addict and I am praying for you. If it is the opiates from when you were injured I would be in an especially good position to help- particularly if the "relapse" is a pattern. I was a chronic relapser and I am not anymore. Would be glad to discuss privately- addy is tomunderscoremackathotmaildotcom.

For some reason I'm feeling a touch emotional today so I hope you don't mind if I post the whole lyric here for all those in need.

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
